The National Human Rights Commission has once again asked the Director Special Project Odisha to submit additional information on rehabilitation of rescued bonded labourers of the State.
It has directed the Government Odisha to furnish the details of payment made to the released labourers along with proof of payment within six weeks falling which action may be taken against the concerned
officials. In its order dated May 22, 2017, the NHRC had expressed displeasure over non-submission of an action-taken report (ATR) of bonded labourer rehabilitation in Odisha.
It would be pertinent to mention here that the NHRC had taken suo moto cognizance after a report published in The Pioneer, entitled ‘Bonded labourers rescued, not rehabilitated on December 11, 2015 and had asked the State Chief Secretary to submit an ATR within four weeks on the matter.
